    Default What type of attendance are you expecting at tonight's game?

    And are you going?

    I'm expecting about 70/30 pacers/bulls

    I'm not going. I want to, but spent way too much on Halloween parties this weekend.

    Go Pacers!

    I'll be there.

    For sure they're is gonna be the same contingent of Bulls fans that are there all every time. 30% sounds about right.
    I just hope we don't have to play them in the first round of the playoffs. Shouldn't have too, but Indy just does not go bonkers for the Pacers until Round 2.
    Most people have no idea they are 4-0 and the last unbeaten team in the league.

    With the Hoosiers down I would imagine the city/state will start going crazy as soon as the Colts are done. Not really fair to George or Luck they both sorta came about at the same time. But thems the breaks

    It's also wrong, in my experience. Tons of friends an acquaintances that otherwise don't give a crap about the NBA are texting and calling me and making Facebook posts about how awesome Paul George is. Hell, this morning there was one from a girl that probably doesn't even know what a basketball is asking "so is this Paul George guy single?"

    Ditto,
    Today at work I had 3 ladies come talk to me about the Pacers and how they are undefeated. This team is over the hump. There is still a ways to go to get back to the love the city had during the Reggie era, but it's happening.

    NO MAN! There shouldn't be "a ways to go" damnit, the team has been in playoffs 3 times in a row with the last one being 1 game away from the Finals! I don't understand Indianapolis/Indiana..the team proved themselves already, why are the people not in love by now? This is Andrew Luck's second year and fans were all in..out early in the playoffs! If I lived in Indy, I'd be PROUD to not only have the #1 Ranked team in the AFC North but also the #1 Ranked only-undefeated team in NBA

    Come on dude! Suck it up and buy a $10 nosebleed ticket! Take one for the team! We need one more Pacer fan to rain abuse from on high unto the Red Sea!

    We'll be there, in the usual spot. I just hope the Pacers can keep DRose from taking off at the beginning of the game. Let the Pacers crowd get into it before the Bulls Jockers can get going and the noise will be fine.

    The cheapest ticket (non stub hub route) through ticket master for this game is $35.

    For those who say people aren't noticing the Pacers are off to a great start, I agree with Heisenberg that this isn't true. I live two hours north of Indy and I'm hearing a lot of people talk about them. I think this will pick up as the season progresses as we'll too.

    As as far as the original topic, I am really hoping for a sellout and predicting a fair amount of red, but not a ton. I think it'll be like the Pacers/Bulls game on March 3 last year.

    Um okay, TV ratings are still low, attendance is still considered low for have the best team in the league. If Central Indiana sports fans can't get excited about a team that has been up and down and all across the media predicted to be one of the top teams in the league, even the eventual champions.....cause the Colts or Hoosiers are playing.... yeah great fanbase.

    Sure they might know they are 4-0, but that doesn't mean they care enough to watch them on TV or attend the game on a Wednesday Night.
    I'll be pleasantly surprised if the Fieldhouse has greater than 70% pacer fans tonight.

    Tix and ratings are both at double digit growth so far. I don't know why you're looking for a reason to denigrate the fanbase. Full of frontrunners or not, it's back. ****, enjoy it. I can wear Pacers gear now and it strikes up a positive conversation with strangers instead of idiots asking about Artest 3 years after shipping him to the west coast. Being a Pacers fan is fun again, stop looking for reasons to be upset!

    Even around 70% would be fine with me, considering most northern Indiana Bulls fans jump on Pacers/Bulls tickets as soon as single seats go on sale (and sometimes even when packages go on sale) which was before the buzz became reality for casual Pacers fans.

    It's like anything else - except for the foundation of idiots like my wife and I who go to every single game, people have 41 games to choose from where specific fans of other teams who live or travel here have only one or two. There will always be a concentration of fans from the other team at a game, smaller for teams far away and unloved, larger for teams closer and hyped. This is especially the case for close teams where tickets in the Fieldhouse are a fraction of the cost for tickets at home. The only solution is to raise ticket prices to match United Center, which is a bit counterproductive considering the complaining about ticket prices.

    Absolutely.... same thing happens when Colts fans invade Cincy for a Colts/Bengals game.

    Which is a 95% attendance rating, if it's easier to look at it that way.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    I had a customer in my bar last night explain that last years playoffs really got him watching the Pacers again. I never thought this meant I had a great chance to criticize him because he hadn't met the loyalty criteria necessary to root for a winning team. I simply thought, "sweet" everyones watching the Pacers again. woohoo.

    This is fun. Let's enjoy it while it lasts.
    Find me on the internets @mattiecolin

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    Exactly. There's still plenty of room on the bandwagon, Indianapolis. Hop on board now, and get a good seat.
